aris14: Olympus announces three new lenses and most comments are about the viability of the company and the future of M43.
Anyway the combo of a flagship Olympus body with this new 4.5/150-400mm lens reaching even less than 3 degrees angle of view, less than 2kg weight, offering handheld ability and at 3,000$ price class altogether, seems a bargain only found in M43 system.

He likes big sensors and he cannot lie.

Actually he's just overcompensating.

xPhoenix: This ruling does seem like a bit of a stretch, but I'm no copyright lawyer, so what do I know? However, seeing a liberal lose always puts a smile on my face =)

How do you know the photographer is a 'liberal'?

worldaccordingtojim: Good thing DJI is making some great gimbals, this looks like a witch hunt. By the time the local governments are finished, it will be easier to carry a gun.

This is not only going to affect airports, this is going to be all of the United States air space.

@ xPhoenix. Sounds about right.

You're not thinking this out. DJI just needs to integrate a firearm into all their drones and the NRA will the defend the constitutional right of all freedom loving Americans to defend themselves, their loved ones and their property within a one hundred mile airspace around and above them.

Rosember: So FF now officially is the entry level and bread an butter format in photography. And Panasonic finally got an upgrade path.
Oh, and DSLRs seem to be riding in the sunset now.

Besides that I will take my newly bought D500 and lenses today and go out shooting as it seems to be a beautiful autumn day. Enjoy your day.

I'd say smart phones are entry level photography. If you want to swap lenses, I think Canon still sells Rebels.

LakeSuperior1: Could just be the drone I've been waiting for. Priced right, better battery and compact. Would just like to know its range.

Be careful. I bought a Yuneec Breeze 4k which failed 10 minutes into its first flight. It took me two months with multiple phone calls to get a replacement.

Phone call wait time is usually 2 hours (which they'll disconnect the second it turns 6 PM PT), the online chat was never available and their feature to set a call back time is generally one to two weeks out. Check their website yourself.

Their customer service is the worst I've ever experienced, bar none.

Peiasdf: What's the justification for charging tax on my out of state online purchase? The seller or I paid for the shipping so that's not a state government service. The business and warehouse are located in another state so local police and fire department aren't the one providing protection. The truck does travel on state roads but state/local income tax and real estate tax already covered that. What service did my state provided to my camera that I should pay them 8.8%? You are running out of money isn't my problem. You should have budgeted better instead of using residents as piggy bank.

@ Mike FL, B&H is located in the most densely part of the most populated city in the US. Do you think that helps?

You may want to ask the same question at your local camera store that (until recently) acted as a showroom for Amazon. I'd be interested to hear the response.

Alpha7Male: "Mommy, what's wrong with that man?"

"Shh, honey. He's a micro four-thirds owner. Don't stare."

"Is he OK?"

"He thinks he is, honey, and that's all that matter."

"Mommy, is it contagious? Can I catch it?"

"I don't think so, but just in case I'll let you read some comments on DPreview."

Sounds like you thought that up while wearing your Members Only jacket while driving your Corvette.

HoustonTexan75: Strange case. The fact this officer actually knew the victim and didn't at least provide a verbal command to "STOP", before firing, is highly suspicious. Regardless, there's still not enough evidence to obtain a grand jury indictment, much less get a jury conviction.

Only a complete idiot would mistake a camera for a gun. Personally, I've had to draw a gun on someone several times in my life and thankfully never had to squeeze the trigger. If this officer indeed perceived the situation desperate enough to bypass facial recognition, where his sympathetic nervous system activated, the ensuing tunnel vision should have been to Grimm's "weapon", easily confirming a camera and zero deadly threat.

The bottom line is the officer snapped and either shot Grimm in anger over being filmed, or panicked and shot out of bare fear. Either way, hopefully they take his shield b/c he has no business as an LEO. The fact that Grimm is suing the officer (not dept.) indicates something personal.

jl, Jeeps don't have trunks.

By your logic, when making a routine traffic stop, any officer should have the right to shoot a third party that pulls out a fishing rod, musical instrument, softball bat, tape measure, camera or tripod from the back of their car. Maybe a backpack too since that could contain a bomb.

New Carlisle is in central Ohio with a population of 6,000. It's not the south side of Chicago.

The "very real chance" of an officer getting shot at that location during that routine situation is minuscule. A good police officer possesses situational awareness.

bluevellet: Cool video. Nice photos. Good introduction to various products.

But I don't quite get those "sponsored content" articles. How are they sponsored? Company just pays for a prearranged trip? That can't be just that since this is a lot slicker in terms of video production than your average camera launches (often accompanied by sponsored trips). Is it some sort of co-production where a company approaches DPR for a project, DPR brainstorms/leads it but the camera manufacturer pays for it? There also seems to be a checklist of sorts where the action stops and a specific camera feature is highlighted.

Sometimes, comments can be made in those sponsored articles (like here), sometimes no. I guess it's up to whichever manufacturer pays?

Scott, I think your background makes you uniquely curious for more information.

Speaking as a laymen, there's really no difference between "advertorial" and "sponsored" to me. It's just a degree of involvement which could probably be significantly influenced either way by a talented PR person regardless of the label.

With either term I know the manufacturer has had a hand in the presentation.
To what degree is really irrelevant to me. I know to take the presentation with a grain of salt.

" ...I would like to see made more explicit in your FAQs and disclosures:"

What else would, " Sponsored content, supported by Olympus" mean?

User5176225075: i am new in video but I need very sharp 4k camera with focus peaking and good video features.is Olympus omd em10 mark iii ok for me?

I use both Olympus and Panasonic. I prefer the Panasonic focus peaking and it's more video-centric in general compared to Olympus. Have a look at the GX85 or G85 depending on whether your prefer a smaller body or more manual controls and weather sealing.

In reply to:

Kuzmabrik: In regard to electronics, software and new technologies - Panasonic was always one of the leaders. I really enjoyed using my G7. Comparing with my Pentax cameras it was just the "camera of the future".

And G9 also looks very advanced in this terms. But. This camera costs and weights like a good APS-C DSLR, but it still is a m4/3 camera. And I wonder who would prefer it to a good APS-C DSLR.

Define "good" . The controls and features on my G85 (and certainly the G9), far exceed those available on the Nikon 5X00 series which I moved from. And the 5X00 series are a very good camera.

joelakeland: For an m43 enthusiast with specific tech needs, this looks to be a great solution. For dedicated stills shooter seeking the best available image quality this is not the answer.

I've owned and like Panasonic cameras in the G and GX series. For me, this one jumped the shark with its size alone.

Not many people can afford or need medium format.

kewlguy: even the battery grip is a hefty $349. That's a big price for a small sensor.

They did that with the G85 too. If you need a battery grip, I agree it's a great deal.
